Talking about his previous wife Funso and their kids in a recent interview, Adekaz said “We got married about 22 years. I got married in 2002 and I’m blessed with beautiful children. I have both sexes. I have four children in total. I do attend parties, but the point is I’m a quiet person, even if I’m at an event I’m always quiet, even when I was younger. But I’m a sociable person. I enjoy my business as well.

I work hard and when it comes to having fun I party hard, but at least I enjoy myself. It doesn’t have to be loud, but when I mean to, I enjoy myself. I go out to have fun and I do have fun. I relax with my kids. I love having my kids around me; I love to be at home watching movies with them or to be at the cinema. I travel a lot as well; it could be within or outside the country. But I love to be around my family a lot.”

He is now married to Mercy, a mum of two.

Mercy Aigbe had separated from Mr. Lanre Gentry, father of her son in 2017.

Though the union crashed irretrievably later, the estranged couple would always throw shades at each other on social media especially on Father’s and Mother’s Days.

By September 2021, Gentry got married to another woman amidst pomp. He even granted interviews stating the many courts his former wife dragged him to in order to set a divorce.

Gentry is Mercy Aigbe’s second husband.

On the 31st of December, 2021 Adekaz and Mercy had a private Nikkai in Lagos, where she was christened Aminah (which she shortened to Minnah). Only a few people were present at the ceremony. There was also a traditional Engagement ceremony held at the same venue. Officially Mrs Adeoti, an excited Mercy announced the new name to her followers on social media later that day (which was also her birthday eve) with a video of her outfit of the day flaunting her new wedding band. Many of her friends flooded her timelines to congratulate her.

On January 1, 2022 at her house in Ogudu,  Lagos where she hosted friends and family to a soiree, Adeoti aka Adekaz was fully on ground and he played the role of a husband diligently. He was up and about, ensuring that guests had a good time. Also, on January 3, at the New Year dance party headlined by King Wasiu Ayinde Marshall in Lekki, the newlyweds were an item all through the event.

Since she left her ex-hubby, this will be the first time Mercy would be flaunting a man publicly. This doesn’t mean that she wasn’t romantically linked with some big names either.

But if you think her currently-married ex, Lanre Gentry would be calm about this new union in Nollywood, then you are wrong. Few hours after Mercy’s announcement of her ‘boo’s birthday’, Gnetry had put up a post on Instagram featuring a throwback photo of himself, Mercy, Adekaz and wife. This insinuated that Mercy must have been sleeping with Adekaz even when he (Gentry) thought Adekaz was a family friend!

He captioned it, “At last I thank God the truth is out this is just one out of many to God be the glory. I don’t need anyone’s comment please.”
